Reacton Fire Suppression establishes UAE office, targets Middle East, Africa and Asia expansion
Reacton is the first and only company in the world to achieve the prestigious P-Mark SPCR 199 standard for fire suppression in the engine compartments of heavy equipment vehicles.
UK-based Reacton Fire Suppression, a global manufacturer of automatic fire suppression systems, is expanding its global reach with an office in Dubai to serve the Middle East, Africa and Asia markets.
Reacton Fire Suppression opened its Dubai office in December 2019, closely followed by appointing Fireward Fire Suppression as the local agent and installer for Reacton systems in the UAE.
Gary Sherrington-Boyd, general manager, Middle East, North Africa and Asia, Reacton Fire Suppression, says: “With an increasing customer base in the Middle East region and a growing demand for Reacton’s P-Mark accredited automatic fire suppression systems, it makes complete business sense to have a local presence in the region. Dubai is also the perfect and strategic location for us to support our growing customer base in the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Australasia, in association with our UK and US offices. The Intersec 2020 expo provided the perfect event for the launch of Reacton in this region, and we’ve been overwhelmed by the welcome we’ve received.”
Reacton Fire Suppression is the first and only company in the world to achieve the prestigious P-Mark SPCR 199 standard for fire suppression in the engine compartments of heavy equipment vehicles, awarded by the Research Institutes of Sweden (RISE), the leading vehicle accreditation safety body.
“Some of the biggest construction, engineering and exploration projects in the world are in the GCC region. With lifting and heavy plant equipment critical to these ventures, it’s no surprise that contractors want to keep their people, assets and infrastructure essential to these operations safe. This is where Reacton’s world-class automatic fire suppressions systems are relied on to protect mission critical equipment and billion dollar operations from the devasting impact of fire.
First-class customer service is in our DNA, it drives everything we do and, combined with our third-party product accreditations, means our customers have complete trust in Reacton. Establishing an in-region presence demonstrates our commitment to supporting our customers from concept through to creation and installation,” says Gary.
